Kehlani has extended their ‘Blue Water Road Trip’ world tour to include dates in Australia and New Zealand.
Celebrating the release of their latest album, ‘Blue Water Road’, the NME cover star will venture to the southern hemisphere next January. Kicking off their tour in Auckland, New Zealand, the R&B star will then head to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, wrapping up in the lattermost city on January 31. According to a press release, a Brisbane date will also be announced soon.

Kehlani first announced their ‘Blue Water Road Trip World Tour’ earlier this month. In addition to the newly announced Australasian dates, the jaunt will see them perform across the UK, Europe and North America.
‘Blue Water Road’ was released in April via Atlantic. It’s Kehlani’s third studio album, following up on 2020’s ‘It Was Good Until It Wasn’t’. They released four singles from the album: ‘Altar’, ‘Little Story’, ‘Everything’ and ‘Up At Night’, the lattermost being a collaborative effort with Justin Bieber.
In a four-star review of the album, NME‘s Rhian Daly called the effort Khelani’s “most lyrically intriguing”, noting how they left behind “the melancholy of the past to embrace a bright new land”.
“This album finds Kehlani in spectacular form – softer, stronger and better than ever.”
